Only the beauty of a wild poppy manages to convey the fine complexity and harmonic characteristics of our Basadone. This rare oenological pearl is the result of the small Pelaverga grape variety, whose grapes are grown in the municipality of Verduno in vineyards located in the Massara and Olmi areas. This unique native vine has been present on the territory of Verduno since 1600. The company, believing in the potential of this grape, was the first to plant a pure vineyard in 1972. Ruby red wine, with characteristic spicy notes and a delicate and persistent flavor. Like a kiss, basadone, which popular tradition wants aphrodisiac, awakens desires.
Color: Bright ruby red Intense and fruity scent, with shades of cherries in spirit and strawberries that add to the characteristic varietal notes of black pepper and nutmeg
Delicate taste with silky tannins and refreshing acidity, with excellent balance and excellent aftertaste persistence
Pairings: White and red meat
The Cerrato family begins the construction of the current Castle. By the Treaty of Cherasco (1631), Verduno came under the jurisdiction of the House of Savoy. Part of the Castle was later rebuilt by Carlo Luigi Caisotti to a design by the architect Juvarra and purchased in 1838 by King Carlo Alberto of Savoy, entrusting the management of the estate and the cellar to General Staglieno, a famous winemaker.
